Pages and The Out Of Hand Band release their latest single, “Till I’m Gone.” Typically known for their aggressive fusion of Hip-Hop and rock, Pages and The Out of Hand Band explore a different route for this joint, combining a heavy new-jazz swing and soothing R&B feel. After the success of "Mainstream Nightmare," this new single enlists on vocal assistance from Jesus Rodriguez and Gabriella Rivera, while Pages balances a nonchalant flow with keen flavor, and still maintains a concise rebel message. Pages continues to perform consistently throughout South Florida, with several upcoming releases in the next few months.

Reveal, the Original Poisonous Poet Returns to the UK Scene


PR: Reveal, the Original Poisonous Poet Returns to the UK Scene

Courtesy Park Street PR.

After spending a few years touring the world and performing in places such as Malaysia, L.A, Canada, Holland, Sweden and Germany, Reveal returns to claim his UK throne with his 7 track solo EP entitled " Seven Shades". Born in Iran during the Iran-Iraq war but raised in inner city London, Reveal has always been an MC with a different perspective. It is this diversity of life experience that has fashioned Reveal into the complex and unique artist that he is today, his work could be described as a mix of hardcore underground Hip-Hop with an urban London vibe coupled with furious social commentary and spiritual musings.

In his own words, Reveal describes the free release as "an experimental musical project, this is what happens when I don't try to edit myself, this is really whats in the deep, dark depths of my mind. The concept of 7's being a significant number was something that I came across while I was studying Religions and it kept coming up in other areas. I learnt that we perceive the world through 7 colours or shades. Our eyes see in 3 primary colours, 3 secondary colours and White, so 7 in total. With these mix of 7 colours, our eyes are able to mix and blend the shades to make the wide range that we see with our eyes."

"Our bodies cells regenerate every 7 years, our hair, skin etc. So the 7 also represents change. I wrote down 7 "shades" or elements that I felt made up my music and they were: Darkness, Infinity, Terror, Change, Truth, Survival, Freedom. The idea started from there, when I was researching all of these things and originally came up with the idea, I also realized that it had been 7 years since my father had passed away. He was a Journalist who was killed when he stepped on a landmine while working as a cameraman in Kurdistan. I decided to start recording based on the vibe I had at the time. The result was "Seven Shades" the EP."

The EP is 7 tracks of original Hip-Hop produced by Iranian Hip-Hop producer, film score composer and Cannes Film Festival Special Jury Award winner Mahdyar Aghajani. It is not your average Hip-Hop release, whether it is the furious face paced anger and fury of "Alone", the chilling, laid back realism of "West London" or the touching, vivid and cinematic tragedy of "Malika (Lost Ones)", each track is a world apart and yet connected. The sonic soundscape created by Mahdyar is a rich tapestry of eclectic musical vibes, mixing a vast array of instruments and production techniques, mixing Hip-Hop, classical Persian music and even using Didgeridoo on one track!

However Reveal is keen to stress that the project is "not some happy hippy, lets all hold hands and sing Koombaya, kind of project, its about real life, MY real life. And first and foremost , I'm a Hardcore MC so I just do what I do normally but with a twist"

Aaron Evans has finally chose to let his gift shine and is asking the world to shine along with him on his debut single and video, "I've Been Blessed".  After ten years making moves as a producer, DJ, label head and author, Aaron is aiming to set a new tone in Hip Hop with a powerful yet beautiful ballad, reminding his listeners that in these trying times, each and every one of us are blessed in our own unique way.  "I've Been Blessed" isn't your average rap song, in fact in today's current marketplace some people would say it's not a rap song at all.

Moonshine Bandits Continue To Get Loose As They Surpass 1 Million Views Online; Direct Support To Rehab On The Gullible's Travels Tour In March & Premiere New Video On CMT Pure Country TV On February 20th

California based country/hip-hop misfits the Moonshine Bandits continue to add new members to the “Shiner Nation”, a term used to describe their growing fanbase, as new recruits continue to get drunk off the group’s intoxicating new album “Whiskey and Women". This week the group’s video for “Get Loose” surpassed the one million views online and officially became a viral sensation. The video can be seen online at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-glMLXWHPU .

“Seeing one of our videos break is a huge accolade for us and our Shiner Nation,” said Tex from Moonshine Bandits. “We did this without a huge ad campaign or a huge radio campaign behind the song, everything we’ve done so far has been with an independent ‘do it yourself’ mindset.  Our sound doesn’t conform to the typical country music standards, and our continued success just validates how big the whole outlaw country
movement has become and shows the industry that it is a force to be reckoned with. We owe everything to our loyal our fans who continue to wave the flag for the Shiner Nation and for outlaws everywhere.”
 
Moonshine Bandits will hit the road throughout March as direct support to Rehab on the group’s “The Gullible's Travels Tour”. The group is touring in support of their new album “Whiskey and Women" which was released through Suburban Noize Records and is available online at http://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/whiskey-and-women/id427742670 . Country Chart praised the group’s new album proclaiming, “"If the country music industry decided to hire some of their own to act as bouncers with the goal of keeping out the scourge of pop country, the first and only name on the list would probably be the hard-working, talented and extraordinarily intimidating Moonshine Bandits.”
 
The Moonshine Bandits' new video for "My Kind of Country" is set to premiere on CMT Pure Country television on Monday February 20th at 10:00am EST.
